Queen Oprah Learns that she is still black

Oprah is known all over the world except maybe in Zurich, Switzerland. Recently, she tried to purchase an expenive handbang and the Europeon clerk told her the bag she wanted to see was to expensive for her to look at. The clerk looked at Oprah not as a media mogul, but simply a black woman, and the clerk decided this black woman could not possibly afford this bag. Oprah shared the story recently on Entertainment Tonight. She did not say the store name, but the pressed tracked it down and the store has apologized, but the apology is not because of the perceived racism the apology is because it was done to Oprah.

    I don’t know which one is worse, her experience in this shop or the fact she was called ‘field nigger’ by Rae Dawn Chong. Goes to show she can’t always win.

    It seems as though you have concluded what the clerk’s motive was and that this can only be a case of blatant racism. Investigation of the facts is not really necessary. Oh wait, there is another side to this story; not that everyone will give it any credence. It’s told by the alleged offender who is white, after all. But for anyone who might be open minded enough to at least consider the other side of the story, I’ve attached the link to the story from the UK Daily Mail.
